DAY 7: Waienga Bay - Maumere

Spend the day discovering the natural wonders of Waienga Bay. On shore, admire the mighty Ile Api volcano and take a stroll through villages untouched by the modern world. These villages are famous for Ikat, a unique dyeing process used to pattern textiles. After, head back to the ship and enjoy one last overnight sail back to Maumere.

DAY 8: Maumere - Departure

Arrive in Maumere in the early morning and depart the cruise ship. Here, we’ll wish you farewell and are more than happy to assist you with your next travel plans. For the remainder of the day, we recommend relaxing at the beach. Maumere is home to many vibrant coral gardens, which are perfect for snorkeling or scuba diving.
